   Check -in  at Dublin Airport                           T2   Aer Lingus Regional scheduled flights  depart and arrive Terminal 2 (T2) Dublin Airport 


                                                                                     Dublin Airport is going to get busier over the coming weeks and months, so it’s vital that passengers allow                                                                                                       themselves plenty of time when travelling. This is particularly important at peak times.

                                                                                     At the moment, peak times at Security occur in Terminal 2 at 05.00 to 12.00 for morning and early afternoon flights.                                                                                       Weekends (especially bank holiday weekends) are busy all day (weekends include Friday, Saturday, Sunday and                                                                                             Monday).

                                                                                     Dublin Airport normally advise passengers to allow 2 hours before a short haul flight departure and 3 hours before                                                                                         a long haul flight departure, but it can be 3.5 hours at these busy peak times.

                                                                                     Airline check-in and bag drop times can vary, so please contact your airline to confirm when their check-in and                                                                                               bag-drop desks open, as this will influence your timing. Please allow time to join any queuing for check-in and/or                                                                                           bag-drop, and then time to complete the Security screening process.

                                                                                     Please note that Security in T2 is now open from 04.00.

Flight Connections Corridor

Donegal Airport welcomes the availability of the Flight Connections Corridor at Dublin Airport to Self-Connecting passengers

All passengers travelling on the twice daily service to Dublin can now use the Flight Connections Corridor at Dublin Airport.  This facility is available to passengers irrespective of which airline they are travelling onwards with.

Self-Connecting passengers, travelling with cabin baggage only, who hold a valid boarding card for any onward flight on the same day, can now use the Flight Connections Corridor to get to their next Departure Gate without the need to clear Immigration and Security Screening channels at Dublin Airport.

Passengers travelling onwards who are ‘Self Connecting’ i.e, travelling on separate tickets who have not checked their baggage to their final destination must continue to collect that baggage at Dublin airport and proceed to Check-In/Bag-Drop for their next flight.  These passengers will be issued with a ‘Domestic Transfer Voucher’, which will expedite entry to security screening at Dublin airport after their Hold baggage is checked in for the onward flight.
